Out of a Hat Challenge 68

Welcome Friends and Followers and lovely to have you pop by today. It is the busiest day on my blog as I am sure many people like to know what we are doing at The Hatters each week.

We have the theme 'Let it Rain' which is quite apt as it is St Swithin's Day in the UK on the 15th and that involves rain.

At first I just made a canvas then I thought it would look nice as a picture so I painted an old wooden frame in a rainy day grey colour.

The little girl image is one of  Melissa Diaz digi images. I did win quite a few of them a while ago but the link where I got them doesn't work any more so maybe she doesn't do the images now. I used various other stamps. The large butterflies on the right are Chocolate Baroque the dandelion heads and leaves are Joanna Sheen and the bee is Cart Us.

Hope you will pop and see what Sandra, Janet and Valerie have made and also join in with your own take on the theme if you have time.

I would also like to the link this to Artful Times where friends Sam, Neet and Cathryn have the theme Come Rain or Come Shine.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie x

  8. Chrissie, your picture is so sweet!! I love the colors and the images your used, and especially how you arranged them all. And the frame you painted brings it all together, so that was truly a great idea.

    The sentiment is more timely than you think, because it really hit home for me at this moment. All in all it's a delightful art piece...very cheery.

  9. Lovely picture and deserving of a frame Chrissie. What a shame if those images are no longer available they are so sweet. I'm in love with the bee!
